  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

sles and opensuse create a boot config which bolts the install to the serial numbers of the hard disks. Cloning creates new serial numbers, and thus those OSes are confused. Not a VirtualBox issue (the same thing happens if you use cloning software with real PCs), and SuSE should have documentation how to fix this.
